Irene is 17. She is the oldest of 5 siblings who were abandoned by their father was she was 7 years old. The family does not know the father's wherabouts to this day. Her mom was willing to give her away for marriage 2 years ago with hope that her son-in-law would help in taking care of the family.
Irene lost hope of styding until she shared her story with Milly of Maisha Foundation, and had the opportunity to go back to secondary school 2 years ago.
